I'm spending my late fall Scamp-on-jackstands-already time thinking and reading about potential modifications, based on my experience so far. Some possible mods involve (scary) cutting into the existing fiberglass interior walls, such as the closet or galley, etc, and then attaching new fixtures, like lights, outlets, etc. I am reluctant to just starting cutting, without specific knowledge of what's going to WORK. Specifically: what tools are required? How critical is it that all blades be utterly sharp/new? What kind of teeth on the cutting tool - very fine, like something rated for metal, or will something that's rated for "wood" do? How susceptible to shattering is this fiberglass, and what does one do to avoid it? (Having shattered a certain amount of plexi in my time, I know it's an issue with rigid, brittle materials.) I suppose one should wear a mask while cutting, right?
And then there's the question of What to Do if you make a booboo and drill a hole in the wrong place (or somebody at Scamp did so, and you want to fill it so it doesn't show, and put the preferable hole somewhere else) and you want to fix it: what repair method would you use? Or would you just take it to a fiberglass shop?
In short, consider that you're writing something you're going to give your son or daughter to work from. Said son or daughter is now 10 or 12 years old, and not stupid, but not necessarily experienced with various materials and tools. What would you tell her or him?
I'm not completely inexperienced with either tools or various materials. I've built closets and stairs, fences, interior walls, and hung doors; I've soldered copper pipes and re-wired a sailboat. I know enough to know the unexpected can happen; that one saw blade, or jigsaw blade, or drill, is NOT like another. I also think that everyone who comments will be helping not just me, but everybody else who's considering modding their Scamp, in any way whatsoever. Pretend I know nothing whatsoever, and thereby help everyone who's envying all your great mods.
So I hope all and sundry will Have at It. GO!
